Lone Wolf

A friend of mine was hard to reach inside of him. Now an illness has opened him up and now I realize all the pain he has inside.

Charles

The Lone Wolf is after me.
Do I address him by looking
into his eyes?
What harm can he do?
I had no idea how to get
into his space,

For years he was not tame
until I heard his cry.
I wanted to rescue him.

Timidly he came to my
voice and opened my mind
to newer promises.

I did not want to fail
him in trust.

I am sorry I waited so
long to listen him.
He was battered
by the unkind.

I could not touch and
him and I did not know
where he lived.

The wild was his companion.

We All need to listen to others

Many times we can be with friends a long time and still don't know what is going on in their minds. I like talking and listening. I was elected to be a peer counselor in the world of the mentally ill. My experiences help others to open up to me. I love my friends and I have my needs too. Balance of the mind with others can be quite effective.

Painful and sad. We need to feel compassion for others and share it when needed.

We are after many but forget the very basic; spending time with each other. All the riches, all the gadgets stand no chance in the face of this vital ingredient - time for each other. I fear for the welfare of the disadvantaged when I see people just being obsessed with a world they see through cyberspace and ignore those who are physically around them. You are a blessed soul, Verna, in sparing time for those who are otherwise neglected, ignored - siva

So beautiful a commentary and so full of truth. I have never learned a thing while talking, but listening is a window to knowledge.
